Egyptian justice minister Ahmed Mekki told reporters on Monday that a resolution to the crisis over President Mohamed Morsi's recent power grab is imminent. The AP reports:
Ahmed Mekki spoke to reporters Monday, hours before President Mohammed Morsi was due to meet members of the Supreme Judiciary Council to discuss the package of decrees announced Thursday. Morsi’s move put him above any kind of oversight, including that of the courts. The judiciary council is in charge of the courts.
Mekki has been mediating between the judiciary and the presidency to defuse the crisis, although he did not say on what he based his prediction for its imminent resolution.
